  1. Hi, that looks fantastic. Can I please ask what Tamia paint numbers were used for the exterior on this ?, I have one to build and love the look of yours Thank you !
  2. This was the closest I could find this morning so will give this a try...thanks for the tip
  3. Yes hope to start a WIP soon !, will make a change do going photoetch crazy on the corsair....lol Alan
  4. Glad to have you along..... Yeah I have abending tool but biggest problem I found was getting the bits to stick !, picked up some kicker at the weekend and that seems to be making things a little better ! Alan
  5. Ooooooohhhh I'm liking the look of this one, think I'll tag along if that's ok? Loving the work so far, I'm intrigued with the rivet making !, looks great fun !, very impressive paintwork so far too.... I watched the "Fury" film last Friday night and was in Hobbycraft with the wife on Saturday and saw this .... So had to buy it , I'm itching to start this lol..... Alan
  6. Hi guys, Sorry for the delay in updates life keeps getting in the way dammit ! I have been experimenting with some of the photoetch....is it me or is it really difficult ?. Managed to get a bit done on one of the wings as I want to perhaps finish the model with wings folded ! Will try and get some more photos up tomorrow of the flaps as I've fitted the hinges to these, but there is still more photoetch to do ! Ta Ta for now Alan
  7. Looks fantastic, I really enjoyed the oil process, think its because its such a flexible process..
  8. Hi guys, Just had a look at the resin wheels and tyres and again a stunning amount of detail.....flabber well and truly ghasted....
  9. Hi chaps, Today's thrilling installment..... In good news my swear box is overflowing that's to the photo etch......lol Bad news it took me about 3 hours of fighting to get 12 bits of photo etch to finally go where I wanted them. Instructions seem to say to fit them to the wings before attaching them onto the plane.....tried this and just not happening, wings seem to have too much flex in them and just as think you have a piece on place and reach for the glue.....ping off it goes across the room....grrrrr. So decided to glue the wing
  10. Thanks for the kind words . Yeah tried cutting on a piece of 25mm thick perspex and on a granite tile but its so thick !(will try to measure it later for fun), spinning wheel of doom is not so bad its variable speed so as long as you keep it off 11 its quite manageable...lol Edit Eduardo photoetch Trumpeter photoetch 3 times as thick !, told you it was tough...lol
  11. Beautiful build, must have a go at a 1/72 scale, can only dream of achieving this type of detail Alan
  12. Hi KelT It's really thick, I tried using a blade and all it was doing was breaking the blades, with the pieces being so long and thin thought if I tried some cutters it may kink the pieces so nothing left in the arsenal but to break out the big guns....lol Alan
  13. This is looking amazing !, that printer, cutter machine looks very interesting ! Alan
  14. Me too, had a nightmare with it on my Swordfish....lol, I'm blaming the wash but I know it was really the fault if the Muppet using it....lol
  15. Good evening chaps, The Boss is out at the cinema so time for abit on the Swordfish, can't put the wings off any longer...... Got to get these bits to fit into the wings and they don't want to play, photoetch and paint are not helping.... Out with the files and lets see what we can do, not too much now ! Ahhh much better Thankfully the bit at the inner edge of the wing needs much less work... Time for a dry fit .... not so bad....should pull into line with some
  16. Afternoon chaps, Sorry for the break in updates, work and life got in the way as it does.....lol But managed to get a couple of hours in over the weekend, so here we go..... Decided to put some oils onto the old stringbag Another process to experiment with Dots, lots of em.... Going to blend em together and add some other colours into the mix Yeah liking that......and I've also added some rusty staining, seeing as I'm going for the distressed look.....lol
  17. Hi, Have to admit I picked the kit up secondhand and it came with all the extras included, no way I would have paid for them myself, only thing I did buy was the reference book, it's really interesting. Alan
  18. Hi guys, Got a chance to have a look at the Corsair this afternoon and thought I'd check out what the hype is about resin extras, I built one of the cockpit sides from the kit then built resin version. Quite blown away with the difference in the extra detail that's on show, though how much will be visible when its in the plane is questionable, I'm going to attempt to paint it anyway and see how we go from there. Cheers for now Alan.
  19. Hi, Looking really good now, really love how this is coming along, the wheels look fantastic Alan
